Design dynamics: landforms are most oftent the setting for plants or turf grass. The lower edge of a landform often sets up conditions for surface water flow.
Landforms are a distinct massing of the ground plane that often take a sculptural context within a landscape design. These earthworks can be used to reinforce spaces, improve storm waterflow + disrupt expectations.
The best landforms seek to draw out the genius loci of the setting for the landscape + often attempt to reimagine the terrain that existed in this area hundreds of years ago, before the city existed in this place.
